  1. Bewitch

    Bewitch was a Thoroughbred race horse born in 1945 at Calumet Farm, Kentucky, United States in the same crop in which the stallion Bull Lea produced Citation and Coaltown. Each of these exceptional Bull Lea foals were, in time, inaugurated into the Thoroughbred Hall of Fame. Bewitch was the only filly. From her dam, Potheen, Bewitch inherited the blood of Broomstick, whose sire was the great Ben Brush. On her mother's side also flowed the blood of Peter Pan, and Hanover. Trained by the Hall of Famer Ben A. Jones, as a two-year-old Bewitch was all but unstoppable, winning her first eight starts, six of them consecutive stakes races. In her very first effort, she led throughout and won by six lengths. One of these stakes was the Washington Park Futurity in which she beat her half-brother Citation, the only defeat he suffered as a two-year-old. Before the end of her first season, Ben Jones turned her training over to his son, Jimmy Jones, who also became a member of the Hall of Fame. Bewitch was named the Champion Two-Year-Old Filly for 1947. At the end of her third season, even though she was out of action with bucked shins until late June, she still won four of her six starts.
